Auto-buy authors

toptentuesday2Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme I take part in when I can think up answers! It’s a great meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. Every week they suggest a new book-related topic. It’s not only fun to think about my list, but to read what other people come up with!

This week we talk about our auto-buy authors. I may not buy every book by these authors if they cost more than my budget allows, but I will read the book as soon as I can.

These are my auto-buy authors (in alphabetical order) since I started my blog in 2013. Some of the authors I did read before I began reviewing books for my blog, but half the authors–Rachel Aaron, M.L. Brennan, Deborah Crombie, Andrea K. Höst and John Scalzi–are new-to-me since I started my blog.

Rachel Aaron (and Rachel Bach)–Fantasy and Science Fiction

Ben Aaronovitch–Urban Fantasy (police procedural)

Ilona Andrews–Urban Fantasy

Anne Bishop–Fantasy

M.L. Brennan–Urban Fantasy

Patricia Briggs–Urban Fantasy

Deborah Crombie–Contemporary Mysteries (police procedural)

Andrea K. Höst–Science Fiction and Fantasy

Tanya Huff–Science Fiction and Fantasy

John Scalzi–Science Fiction

Who are your auto-buy authors?

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. That’s something I’ve found too- since blogging I’ve discovered so many new authors (ones I would probably have never tried). I see John Scalz come up a lot, and I haven’t been reading as much sci fi lately, but I may check his stuff out.


    1. That is a really great part of blogging–finding books and authors. John Scalzi’s books are really good. I think you would like his books, Greg.


  2. Deborah Crombie made my list too though I’m far more behind than I’d like in the series. I love her books! The rest aren’t really genres I read much of but I’m hoping to try Ilona Andrews soon.


  3. “Urban Fantasy” is a great genre description for Patricia Briggs! I’ve never heard that term before but it fits perfectly. When I worked in a bookstore we always put her in “Paranormal Romance” which I never really agreed with – but the other option was putting her with the science fiction, which didn’t really make sense either.


    1. I agree that Patricia Briggs’ books don’t fit with the “paranormal romance” label. Thanks for stopping by, Dessa.


  4. What a wonderful list. I should have added Anne Bishop, but so far I really only read The Others series. I had Patricia Briggs on mine as well. Have you read The Enchancements series by Huff? I need to read the last book but I thought it was really great. You don’t see it around much. Thanks for sharing!


    1. I’m not sure which Tanya Huff series that is, Barb. What are some of the titles. I do like her writing! I’ve read several of her series, but still have a couple of the series to read which is great since I enjoy her writing.


  5. I am completely addicted to Aaronovitch’s Peter Grant series so any time a new book comes out it’s an auto-buy. I think it’ll be the same way if he ever decides to write anything else 🙂


  6. Anne Bishop and Patricia Briggs are musts for me, too! I’ve been a longtime fan of Briggs but I only discovered Anne Bishop this past year. Rachel Aaron/Bach is definitely moving her way up my auto-buy list, as well. I can’t wait to read Fortune’s Pawn!


    1. I read The Black Jewels series by Anne Bishop several years ago so when I saw the new series I was on board with it! I hope you’ll enjoy Fortune’s Pawn, Danya. It was lots of fun.
